How to Know Average Weight for Women by Age and Height  - Universal Fact

The typical weight for women depending on age and height depends on body composition, muscle mass, and health. General guidelines for estimating women's typical weight:

1. Height and Body Frame

Consider height and body size (small, medium, large) when measuring weight. Taller women may naturally weigh more than shorter women with the same frame.

2. BMI Calculation

Estimate a healthy weight using BMI. Weight in kilogrammes divided by height in metres squared yields BMI (BMI = weight (kg) / height (m)^2). BMIs between 18.5 and 24.9 are healthy.

3. Age Considerations

Due to metabolism, muscle mass, and hormonal changes, weight can change with age. However, BMI ranges are still relevant for determining healthy weight across ages.

4. Average Weight Ranges

– Height 5'0" (152 cm): 105-140 lbs (47-63 kg) – Height 5'4" (163 cm): 115-155 lbs (52-70 kg) – Height 5'8" (173 cm): 125-165 lbs (56-75 kg) – Height 6'0" (183 cm): 135-180 lbs (61-82 kg)

5. Consultation with Healthcare Provider

Remember that muscle mass, body composition, and health issues might affect optimal weight. A doctor or nutritionist can offer personalised advice.

6. Lifestyle and Health Goals

Focus on health, not just weight. Healthy lifestyles depend on diet, exercise, and mental health.

7. Regular Health Check-ups

Monitor weight, BMI, and health with frequent checkups. Your doctor can help you maintain a healthy weight.
